Guest: Sam Lantinga
On today’s show I interview Sam Lantinga a game developer at Blizzard and the creator of a very popular open source media library called SDL. We go into detail of why Sam created SDL, the features it offers, and who should use it. Sam also gives lots of advice on how to became a better game developer and what it takes to get into the game industry. If you are currently studying to become a game developer or just wondering where to start I would say this is a must listen. Do to audio issues about half way through the recording of Sam’s voice begins to sound a bit scratchy, but the rest of the show turned out pretty well.
